Hi ! Just subscribed to your email letter, and follow your blog! Patterns are lovely!How I found you...looking on a site that mentioned "Little Doolally" and I just had to write you a note, after doing the sign ups!My one friend and I both had families who talked about "Doolollies"...turns out we both an English grandfather who married our German grandmothers over here in the US.Your Ravelry name is the first time I have ever heard anyone use doololly , and I am 69 years old ! When I saw you were in the UK, I thought maybe "doolally" was an English expression. Just had to share! Nice to "meet" you!Dorothy
Hi Dorothy, thank you for your lovely and kind comments. Yes, I believe 'doolally' is a English expression meaning to 'loose your mind' a little. Which is exactly how I feel when I think about crochet! Lol! Thank you for signing up to the blog, I hope you enjoy reading it and maybe have a go at a pattern :)Best wishes,Amy
I love your patterns! I'm just getting into crochet and I really love it, it's a great way to relax I think. I bought the deer blanket patttern but there are a couple of things im not sure about as im a newbie. Ive done the grass bit and I am now starting on the blue, Im ok with changing the colour so far but im a bit stuck when I come to the end of the row, chain one and turn my work as when I change colour again from blue to brown and back to blue, I have a long piece of blue on the right side of my blanket. How do i keep the long bits on the underside? Also do I need to cut the brown on each row after I have finished that colour or can I carry it on from the row underneath? Sorry for all the questions, it's probably something really simple but im a bit confused.
Hi Lucy,Thanks for leaving a comment :) There is a Intarsia tutorial already on the blog if you want to check it out - http://www.littledoolally.com/2014/11/intarsia-crochet-tutorial.html Also, you can carry the yarn up the back of your work instead of cutting it after each row. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any furthur queries.Best wishes,Amy
